Famous quotes containing the words journal, folk and/or music:

    The Journal is not essentially a confession, a story about oneself. It is a Memorial. What does the writer have to remember? Himself, who he is when he is not writing, when he is living his daily life, when he alive and real, and not dying and without truth.
    Maurice Blanchot (b. 1907)

    The ties between gentle folk are as pure as water; the links between scoundrels are as thick as honey.
    Chinese proverb.

    It is from the blues that all that may be called American music derives its most distinctive character.
    James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938)
